Shaking in the New Year

This week's CAS challenge on SCS is "Bringing in the New Year" - and the card has to have some kind of explosion theme - explosion of colour, explosion of fireworks, explosion of sparkle, etc.

I thought a shaker card works well as an explosion of sequins and glitter when you shake it.

I stamped and heat embossed a starry background for the shaker and a sentiment for the card front, filled it with sequins and tiny stars, and set it in a white card front. I added the sentiment and a scattering of the sequins and stars to the card front. The card base is gold shimmer cs.

I don't make many shaker cards but this was fun to make so must try a few more!

Stamps - Serendipity Happy New Year, Stamp Oasis star background
Ink - ColorBox gold
Paper - white and gold cs
Size - A2
Accessories - Impression Obsession shaker window, sequins and star glitter, Stampendous Pirate Gold embossing powder


  1. What a gorgeous shaker card, Susan! Love all those stars and the glittery sparkle!

  2. what a great mix of colour and sparkle. The star background is so pretty in gold and perfect for New Year card :)
